Me in 20-Something Years...


If I want to know what I’ll be like in twenty-something years, all I have to do is look at my mom.


I am the spitting image of her – or so everyone who sees us together says (aside of course from our hair color, ha!). With my mom I have talked, cried and laughed more than I ever have with any other person. Sometimes I think with a bottle of wine and enough time we actually could solve the majority of the world’s major problems.


Today is my mom’s birthday and today I am so thankful that I have her for my mom, that we have such a wonderful friendship and that we have shared so much over the years!! I am thankful to have had such a wonderful example of a devoted wife and a loving mother.   


From my mom I have learned that:  *it is always better to be gracious than right*, that *people won’t always remember the words you used but the feeling you gave them*, and that *a true lady is always graceful*.


Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!
